  1. TECHNIC AIRCRAFT CONTEST - INFORMATION TOPIC After discussing several contest ideas, we figured this was the most popular idea for the next contest....flying stuff! "The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who...looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space...on the infinite highway of the air." DESCRIPTION Build a LEGO Technic Aircraft. Obviously, your model doesn't have to be able to fly. This is not a wacky competition so we are looking for realistic vehicles. It doesn't have to be an existing vehicle or a model of an existing vehicle, but it needs to be something we could potentially see in real life. You can come up with your own concept design (like the B-model of the BMW Motor Bike), but we are not looking for futuristic unrealistic scifi designs. No spaceships either. Drones, jetpacks, balloons, zeppelins, planes, helicopters, etc are some of the potential models that come to mind. Here is a list of vehicles for which it wasn't very clear whether they are allowed: Kites, yes Gliders, yes Spacecraft, no Spaceshuttles/Orbiters, yes Rockets, yes SSTOs are Single Stage To Orbit-Spacecrafts , yes Ground Effect Vehicles, yes Hovercrafts, no DEADLINE Deadline date is Monday the 17th of February 2019. Contest will be closed on Tuesday the 18th of February, OR LATER. Disclaimer: I will close the contest when I see fit and when I have the time to process the results. This can be later than the deadline date. Please don't complain about this not being fair and all. RULES AND REGULATIONS The following section describes the contest specific and general rules and regulations. But before that, please take notice of a simple motto regarding the Eurobricks Contests: CONTESTS ARE FOR FUN! Of course there's competition, but at the end of the day, LEGO is just a hobby and the main goal for each of us is to have fun! CONTEST SPECIFIC RULES AND REGULATIONS Each entry needs to have a name (no name, no entry). Model Team style building is not permitted. You can use system parts, but keep it mainly Technic. Mindstorms and LEGO Electronics are permitted. SBrick and Buwizz are permitted. 3rd party Strings, Hoses and Rubber Bands are permitted. 3rd party tires are not permitted. Other 3rd party parts are not permitted. There is no size limit. GENERAL RULES AND REGULATIONS The contest is open to all EB members (also new members). Members can be banned from voting (when vote rigging is suspected). Voting rules will be explained later in the voting topic. One entry per member. Entries need to be new (never posted anywhere previously or shown at an event/LUG meeting). Only physical builds, so no LDD or other virtual entry. If you have any doubts about the suitability of your entry contact me, or Milan. All entries are to include only real LEGO. No clone brands, 3rd party parts, or digital entries allowed. Custom stickers are allowed. No cutting, sculpting or modifying parts. Entries are to be placed in the entry topic in this forum. Entries not in the entry topic are not eligible for voting. The entry post may be edited at any time up to the end of the contest, so feel free to make improvements if you wish. The contest might be closed later than the deadline. Don't complain about this not being fair. You have enough time to build. Don't ask for more time. We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that does not follow these rules. These rules can be changed whenever we see fit to ensure that people follow the intent of the contest. Jury members are not eligible to participate. WHAT DO I NEED TO ENTER? All participant need to create a discussion topic and create a post in the entry topic. DISCUSSION TOPIC A discussion topic starting with [TC15]. A discussion topic needs to show some actual progress (i.e. pictures of the build in progress) and should NOT be used to "reserve an idea". ENTRY POST The entry post in the entry topic should contain: Entry name. One or more pictures (max 3 of max 1024x1024). Embedded video (mandatory). Link to the discussion topic. VOTING Voting scheme will be public voting only, but only by members who have 50 posts or more. If you have less posts, you can vote, but your votes will be automatically excluded from the tally. Voting criteria are (in no particular order): Originality. Looks (shape, color scheme etc). Quality of the build. Functionality. PRIZES Three wonderful prizes can be picked from the five sets below. For the prizes we define two categories of contestants: Mortals (contestants who haven't won any medals in previous contests) and Immortals (contestants who have won one or more medals in previous contests). Top-3 winners will get medals as usual, regardless of the category. 1st PRIZE: WINNER OF THE CONTEST The winner of the contest calls dibs on one of the five sets. 2nd PRIZE: RUNNER UP OR FIRST MORTAL The second prize goes to: Highest ranked mortal, if the contest winner is an immortal (already has a medal) The person who ended second (actual runner up), if the contest winner is a mortal (has no medal yet) So, in theory both prizes can go to mortals, but I'm sure the immortals will do their best to prevent that 3rd PRIZE: RAFFLE PRIZE The third prize will be raffled among contestants who have created a discussion topic (early on), are actively showing progress and providing value to the community. @Milan and myself will decide who gets this prize. No discussion. The raffle winner can choose one of the three remaining sets.
  2. TECHNIC AIRCRAFT CONTEST - VOTING TOPIC Voting will be open for a variable period of time. Closing date will most likely be somewhere between one and two weeks. VOTING RULES AND REGULATIONS Voting scheme uses the old Formula One style point distribution (10, 6, 4, 3, 2 and 1 POINT) You need to assign 10 points to the 1st place, 6 points to the second and so one. You need to vote for 6 ENTRIES (no more, no less) Clearly mention the ENTRY NUMBER and the NUMBER OF POINTS per entry that you vote on. If you joined Eurobricks after the start of the contest, you can be banned from voting (when vote rigging is suspected) You may NOT vote for your own entry. In the event of a tie for any place the Technic Staff will decide which entry wins. Our decision is final. Questions about voting can be asked in the Discussion Topic. For example (entries randomly chosen): --- comments can be placed above the votes 5: 10 (no comments here please) 6: 6 1: 4 9: 3 7: 2 3: 1 Or comments can be placed below the votes ---- NOTES Please use this exact notation NUMBER: VOTES (with a colon). Please don't type #1:10, 1 = 10 or 1) 10 or other notations. Stick to the example format shown above. Please use this thread only for voting. You may explain why you made your choice, but any general discussion should take place in the Discussion Topic. Comments should be placed ABOVE or BELOW the votes. Please don't comment on the same line as the votes. VOTING Voting scheme will be 100% member voting. Voting criteria are (in no particular order): Originality. Looks (shape, color scheme etc).

  4. Hi there! I just signed up and saw there was TC15 running. I know I'm too late to take part, but I just wanted to share this build... At Christmas, I came across the set 8855's propeller that was sitting in my old Lego pile at my parents and decided to give this nice piece life again. It was a tricky challenge, since the only way to attach it is through regular brick interface, which has almost totally disappeared from the Technic world. Except for the piston engine supports, I figured. So that's what I used and started building a motor for the prop. Happy with the result, I then proceeded to build a whole aircraft too, paying homage to its ancestor: high wing, classic plate elevators, similar controls. I do not have that much yellow beams or parts, in fact the only beams I had in sufficient number were from a previous-gen Mindstorms set. They dictated the color scheme. Also, the build had to be kids proof, so I can let my son play with it. That's what I came up with: All controls work, it has a suspended landing gear and working motor. It is quite tough too, and can be actually be played with. That was for my modest contribution to TC15, kudos to the enlisted builds, they look awesome!
  5. From the first time I saw the theme for this Lego Technic contest, I was intrigued by it and wanted to give it a try, but it had to be a biplane. I have a soft spot for these aircrafts, after seeing them in many documentaries and old Hollywood movies. And after some time on the world wide web, I was hooked on the striking blue/yellow color combination on the Boeing Stearman Model 75. It's basically a military trainer aircraft built starting from 1934, in the United States. More than 10k were built until 1940, and after the WWII, they were sold to civilians. This was a great move, cause they were used as crop dusters, then as sport and acrobatic planes used in air shows. Around 1500 are still in use today, and many are at display in museums around the world. But enough of this, you can read more about it and see real photos on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing-Stearman_Model_75 I tried my best to replicate the sleek lines of this marvelous biplane, while including relevant functions, such as: Functions: - motorized rotor - working ailerons (front) - working elevators (back) - functional tail rudder Technical Specs: Scale: 1:19 Weight: 956g Lenght: 46cm Wing span: 52cm Height: 18cm As the model is finished, see some representative photos here: So guys, I managed to get the stickers on, so here is the final model: See more detailed photos on my Flickr account: https://www.flickr.com/photos/braker23/albums/72157705259798851/with/46179286365/ Video is done and online, let me know what you think about functions: Thank you all for your time!

  7. This stealth single engine aircarft is equipped with the most modern avionics and military technologies: aerial supremacy, low observability, situational awareness, multispectral sensors, extremely connected, network-centric warfare, 360 ° vision. Its particular profile makes it suitable especially for aerial superiority, it can be deployed from both ground and aircraft carriers (thanks to his compact body). Also is equipped with modern weaponry suitable for a 6th generation jet fighter: two cannon and retractable pods (to minimize radar track) for air to air missiles, or air to ground missiles. The name come from Abaddon, a powerful demon in Christian and Jewish mythology. This aircraft feature also a one pilot cockpit with on board computers, commands and ejectable seat, functional air surfaces (2x ailerons, 2x elevators, 2x rudders, 2x air brakes), functional retractable trucks inside aircraft, hook for docking on aircraft carriers, top nozzle for aerial refueling and jet engine afterburner.

  8. So, it's already been three days since the contest was announced, and I still haven't built anything yet... It's probably time to get started then! The Inspiration: The idea for my entry comes from the main model of set 8485 - a set I'm still yet to build despite owning most of the parts... The Goal: My plan for this build is basically a modern version of the above model, but with a plane replacing the helicopter, and including the following features: Movable ailerons and elevators Lifting, rolling, and pitching of the plane Full manual control - no remote control. (hopefully) Possibly something else... The First Prototype: Rather than spending an extra day building a working prototype, I decided to just quickly build the basic idea in LDD, as I know from experience that I rarely end up using anything from the first prototype... Anyway, that's all for now, I hope to have something functional built either tomorrow or the next day...
  9. Probably the closest the humankind has ever gotten to an irl starfighter. Not a fan of white, but unfortunately that is the dominant color of my panels (wonder why). Heavely basing myself off the Sukhoi SU47 "Berkut" with the angled double tail and FS wings, as starfighters are banned. Started off witht rear part as imo these Mars Mission wheels resemble jet exhausts. Most probably will include basic aileron controls , not so sure about the rudder(s) Maybe a third vertical stabiliser to kick it off? current progress:
  10. Hello ! For my first topic here I would like to share with you a small thing I made that proved itself very useful ! I've had my 31039 sitting at the top of a 2 meters high shelf for a few month now and all I could see all day was the underneath of it. I was quite sad of this because I love this set and it's a very displayable model so I decided to work on a stand to display it. I wanted it to be : - As light as possible - Easy to use with any model - Made of common parts (actually the few parts I had left available) - And most important with ADJUSTABLE TILT ANGLE so I can modify the model position depending of how high the model is displayed. Here is the result : The stand is very sturdy and can handle a quite heavy model as long as it is well balanced on the stand. The model connects thanks to two 1x4 Technic bricks joined by a 2x4 plate : The parts are quite common and the rarest of them is the black 24T (I wanted the stand as black as possible ) Here are some pictures of the stand with the model on display : I also tested it with the 75102 and 75175 and both worked fine with the stand ! I think it can be easily modified to display technic models by replacing the technic bricks with Beams. I hope you will enjoy this stand, feel free to ask any question or suggest any improvement ! Oh and here is what it looks like on display at the top of the shelf :

    MOCs: LEGO Aviation

    Hi all, as you might know I’m a car builder mainly, however, I’m interested in practically everything in the Lego City world, boats, trains (and monorail, of course!) included. One of the subjects I’m very fond of is Lego aviation. Of course, we won’t see those heavy brick-built aircraft fly high in the sky. But even grounded planes are quite interesting, especially passenger and cargo planes, just because of their size which allows lots of special functions you won’t be able to include in smaller vehicles. Plus an airport is in fact a place where lots of different vehicles can be watched: crash tenders, pushbacks, pallet and belt loaders, jet air starters, refuelers, extra-wide buses etc. etc. Since there are quite a few MOCs now concerning aviation I will put them together in this thread. This can also be regarded as a contribution to the idea of a more technical Lego city where any space available is used to include functions or light to get more interesting Lego City layouts. #1 Faun 8x8 Crash Tender (ARFF/FLF) 8w ARFF, equipped with 3 flashing lights (9 Volt Light & Sound) plus battery box. Fits 2 minifig firefighters. The Faun has its own thread: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=96949 #2 Canadair Waterbomber CL-215 Wingspan 80 studs, weight 1050 g, equipped with 3 PF M motors (2 for the engines, 1 for the flaps), battery box and IR receiver. The rudder is coupled with the nose wheel. Fits 2 minifig pilots. Since 2014 the Canadair has undergone some changes, e. g. it has smaller propellers nowadays. Also the Canadair has its own thread: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=95522 #3 Turbofan A possible design of a spinning turbofan with PF M motor I've developed some years ago: Sorry, I only have this blurry video of it. This design hasn't been used on an aircraft model yet, maybe I'll build something around it in the future. #4 Pushback/Tow Tractor/Aircraft Tug “Goliath” Not the most beautiful vehicle I've ever built, but it does its job: moving relatively large aircraft on a Lego airport which is rather rare to be seen, I guess. Equipment: PF M motor, IR receiver, battery box + Light & Sound flashing lights. Plus it has a storage compartment to keep the tug bolts. The pushback has a front wheel drive (with worm gear) and is able to push or pull Lego aircraft up to 1,5 kg (tested), maybe more, on a straight path - I wasn't able to build in a proper steering. More pics: Fixing the engine: Video: Thanks for looking, more to come (there's another aircraft in the pipeline). [Edit, 26 June 2016] #5: Sea King Coast Guard Helicopter PF motorized The chopper has its own thread: http://www.eurobrick...26#entry2596441
  12. Here I'd like to show you two airplanes that were already on display at the exhibitions Bricking Bavaria in Germany and Mondesee in Austria. Both planes were also available as official sets in large scale in 2001 and 2002 – I had now tried to construct them in minifigure size. Sopwith F.1 Camel Fokker Dr.I Hope you like them - please let me know in the comments :) Best Johannes
  13. Hey! Check out my Lego Boeing 737-600! Working: aileron, rudder, elevator, control column RC: flaps, slats, spoilers, landing gear, thrust reverser Length: 110 cm Wingspan: 125 cm Height: 40 cm Weight: 2,8 kg Video here:
  14. Grid F4 Studica. Based on the Argentinian PUCARÁ (in Qechua, “fortress”) counter-insurgency (COIN) aircraft, the Erotema Air Force requested projects for a similar plane. Some projects were presented, and the final one, offered by Erotema Air and Defence Systems (ERADS), was selected. This model, whose selling name is PICARÓN, has the following features: -2 piston engines. -2500 kg of external load. -6 hardpoints (fuel tanks, bombs, missiles, rocket pods, machine gun pods…). -4 12,70 mm machine guns. One of the requirements for tender was the possibility of operation in unpaved runways. That´s why the landing gear is abnormally long and has 6 low-pressure wheels. Once you know the aircraft, there´s the story… In an improvised airfield close to Carrefour, in no man´s land, a lonely PICARÓN is fueled up and loaded for an incoming CAS sortie. 1 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr 2 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr 4 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Very close to the aircraft, the pilot receives the last orders. -Your orders are simple: loiter over Carrefour and provide CAS on demand by either our army or our COAC allies. Your callsign is TIZONA. When requested to a certain area, proceed as fast as possible. No enemy aircraft foreseen. -Ok, when the bird is hungry, what can I do? -Simple, just let us know by selecting your closest landing area. They are preloaded in your flight computer, and proceed. -Inflight refueling? -Not yet…but the refuel will be quick. However, you will be able to eat, drink, piss or what you need. No more than 10 minutes to have the plane ready to crap steel. -Good. Let´s go. 4 1 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr 5 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr 6 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr And the PICARÓN prepared for takeoff… 7 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr 8 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Details of the weapon load. Hellfire Missiles. 9 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Left wing, we can see 3 Hellfire missiles, 3 125-kg bombs and 6 similar bombs under the belly. The right wing carries another 3 missiles and bombs. 10 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr By the way, TIZONA was the sword of El Cid (have you seen Charlton Heston´s movie???) He was one of the heroes of the Spanish Crusade, which started in 711 AD until 1492 AD when the Arab invaders were defeated. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Cid_(film)

  16. Today, I would like to share my first creation on Eurobricks with you all. A model of a giant towbarless Pushback Tug. To be exact, the Goldhofer AST-1X 1360. The real vehicle can lift up the front landing gear of the biggest aircrafts. I tryed to build all the functions, how they are build in the real Goldhofer, especially with the rear steering. The model has 8 RC functions:- Front wheel drive (XL Motor)- Front wheel steering (M Motor) - Rear wheel steering (2x M Motor) -- I had to decide, whether I would like to have crab steering or steering with different wheel angles to allow smooth driving. In the end I've chosen the second option, because crab steering is still kind of possible.- Raise cabin (M Motor)- Pneumatic pump (L Motor)- Raise landing gear (L Motor)- Close lid (M Motor)- Fix landing gear (M Motor) Unfortunately, the model has some flaws. The cabin is lifted in a weird way, because of the battery box under it and I struggled with the lifting section. I had to use really strong clutch gears and worn out valves, and even with that, the valves didn't switch always. Also I had a problem with one of the pneumatic cylinders, the reason why I used two pumps. As a result I had to glue two 2L axle between the pumps to the red 1x2 thin liftarms because of the vibration. I was sick of searching for another solution . Here is a quick render, made with LDD and Bluerender. Images with higher resolution on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/151347462@N05/albums/with/72157684495359644 I already took the model apart, but l would still love to hear your opinion, some tips or criticism. Maybe I'll give that model another go in the future.
  17. Hi, here's an older MOC that I haven't posted on EB so far. Maybe the one or the other had seen it on flickr, but I wanted to share it with you also here now. It's a Junkers G23, an airplane from the 1920s manufractured in Germany. It was the predecessor model of the more popular Ju 52. Wasn't too easy to get all the parts, especially some rare ones like all the pearl light gray bricks with grille (from the Santa Fe Wagons) or the black motor grilles (from the first Knight Bus). Hope you like it :) Junkers G.23 by Vaionaut, on Flickr PS: Posted it in the Adventures forum because I thought it fits quite good here (Junkers airplanes also appeared in Indiana Jones for example).
  18. Let me present MOC 'Dodo', a plane from GTA series. It is based on Cessna 152 or similar, however, I didn't mean to create an exact copy, and made it more like in a free style of a 42040 size Features & Functions: – HOG controlling rudder and front wheel – Manual control of ailerons, elevators and flaps – Opening doors – Rolling propeller and wheels. Unfortunately, I could not archieve the right weight balance, so I had to place the model on a stand. Despite its technical imperfection, I'm still satisfied with the design.
  19. Let me turn aside from cars and trucks and present you the Autogyro: Autogyro/gyroplane/gyrocopter is a vehicle, which contains both helicopter and plane qualities. As a helicopter, it has main rotor, making a gyro get off the ground. At the rear an engine-powered propeller pulls the vehicle horizontally, like a plane. The primary feature of autogyro is autorotation. Autorotation makes the main rotor rotate through air flows only. It does not need an additional power source; some models have pre-rotator, though. This is an ultralight autogyro, so, despite its look, it is finished. Video: Features & Functions: – Spinning rotor and propeller – Rolling wheels – Main rotor control with the joystick – Rudder control through pedals – Fake flat-2 engine – Dashboard – Seat belt. Measures: 27x14x21cm (blades diameter – 50cm). Weight: 150g. Autogyro isn't a common type of vehicle. I personally met it once while watching the second part of Mad Max trilogy, and I was astonished by its unusual look. Anyway I didn't try to copy it or any other specific copter. The presented one a collaboration of many.
  20. Russian aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov" with escort ships. Scale 1: 350, LDD. For aircraft carrier group, I used the newly built model aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov" and the latest version of my ships project 956, 1135m, 1155 and 11551 built on the scale of 1: 350. More pictures you can see on my page Model aircraft carriers built using a set of documents from the Sluban M38-B0388. Since Sluban uses a large number of original parts, practically the whole ship had to be rebuilt. At the same time, I made a number of improvements to the weapons and design.
  21. Hi, guys ! There're a lot of aircraft carrier mocs out there, so I thought I could introduce my catapult system. The main catapult mechanism is simply a winch plus a clutch. (powered by one L motor) I used another L motor & 2 actuators to control the JBD. The acceleration is quite fast considering I am using only one rubber band. You may also attach more rubber bands if you have heavier fighter Jet mocs or RC planes. Here is the video as always ! [/media] [/media]

    5935 Island Hopper Redux

    Hello everyone! I'm here on the Action and Adventure forum today to share with you my latest creation: 5935 Island Hopper Redux! 5935 Island Hopper redux by Joshua, on Flickr 5935 Island Hopper redux flying by Joshua, on Flickr 5935 Island Hopper redux wheels down by Joshua, on Flickr 5935 Island Hopper redux interior by Joshua, on Flickr ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5935 Island Hopper was one of my favorite sets TLG ever put out. I have many happy memories from my youth of long hours spent lost in the world of Johnny Thunder, and this set was always my favorite to play with, and somehow always made it into every adventure, no matter what environment it was taking place in. Sadly I no longer have the original set still complete, but recently I came across the instructions, and decided it was time for this to be reborn with new parts and techniques. All the play features from the original set are there, such as folding wings, and removable roof, but I also added a few of my own, namely retractable landing gear, opening rear hatch,full interior, and working vertical and horizontal stabilizers. Worth noting is that many of the pieces from the original set were used in the new model. Hope you all like it! Long Live Johnny Thunder! Cheers, Joshua

    Creator Aircraft Fleet

    Creator is among my favourite themes, with its no-nonsense, anonymised, 3-in-1, 'pure LEGO' approach, and in this theme, the aircraft are always my first purchases. I recently bodged together a nice light-up display area for models and the first theme to go in was a selection of Creator's aircraft: CIMG0062b by bananaworld, on Flickr The Dilemma: They've been on display for a while now and I'm itching to build up another theme from the stash, BUT I don't want to take them apart! Which ones should I save to display elsewhere? Just the stunning larger ones, or are any of the smaller sets just too brilliant to part-out?
